Coasting – for Inspiration


The Weekly Photo Challenge was ‘Inspiration’.  The magnificent Dorset coastline certainly inspired me to undertake a serious shin-busting, calf-ripping trek for a better vantage point for the lovely Lulworth Cove and cliffs.

DSC_0162Chesil Beach – the location for Ian McEwan’s Booker Prize winning novella – still in Dorset.  Another climb here, this time in a car, high above Portland.

Some foreign coastlines – Table Mountain from Bloubergstrand, and Los Gigantes, Tenerife.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

      Thanks Bill. Sometimes I forget how lucky we are living on a relatively small island where you’re never really that far from the coast. Our trip to Dorset earlier this month really reinforced that for me.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
